Nuclear-powered industrial steam supply project launched

China’s first nuclear-powered industrial steam supply project has been launched in the city of Lianyungang in Jiangsu Province, according to the China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA). The project, Heqi-1, is located at the Tianwan NPP.

Heqi-1 uses heat from the Tianwan NPP to produce industrial steam via a multi-layered isolation system. The industrial steam will then be transported through pipelines to the petrochemical industrial base using multi-stage heat transfer.

The project is expected to deliver 4.8m tonnes of zero-carbon steam annually from the power plant to the petrochemical base of Lianyungang. China National Nuclear Corporation says this project will reduce the equivalent of combustion of 400,000 tonnes of standard coal each year, cutting carbon dioxide emissions by more than 1m tonnes, sulphur dioxide by 184 tonnes, and nitrogen oxides by 263 tonnes.
